A new concert venue will open its doors in St. Louis this May featuring a headlining concert from popstar Kesha.
Saint Louis Music Park, a multipurpose outdoor concert venue with a capacity of 4,500 people, was unveiled this past Tuesday at the St. Louis Legacy Ice Foundation and the City of Maryland Heights. The venue is a part of the Centene Community Ice Center – the practice venue for the St. Louis Blues – and has a booking deal with promoter giant Live Nation Entertainment. Live Nation St. Louis President David Gerardi said in a statement that the Music Park will make a “fantastic addition to the portfolio of amazing venues in the region.”
Maryland Heights’ Mayor Mike Moeller noted that the city is proud to partner with Live Nation for its new outdoor plaza and amphitheater.
“Over the last couple years, we’ve been working together to develop and fund amenities that create a unique and high-quality venue for Live Nation’s concerts, as well as community events like farmer’s markets, local concerts, family movie nights and much more,” Moeller said. “Our efforts set the Centene Community Ice Center apart from other attractions not only in St. Louis, but nationwide.”
The venue is set to officially open on May 25 with a concert from Kesha and Big Freedia on her forthcoming High Road Tour. Already, the Music Park has a packed schedule for its debut season with concerts from the glam-rock group The Struts, rock’s Barenaked Ladies and David Gray, and folk-rock group Michael Stanley and the Resonators this year. In addition to concerts, the venue will host community events, food and beer festivals, family entertainment, and a variety of children’s programming amid its pavilion seating, artificial lawn, and park-like setting next to a lake.
